It is the day of the Eclectic Keepsakes crop today and I won't be there. Someone else will be eating my cupcake. Someone else will be sitting with Jane and Denise and catching up with all the gossip. Someone else will be winding Jane up about the fact that she is the guest designer for the next month's crop.
But although I am not there in body, I am with them in spirit and Karen kindly let me have an early kit to play with and so I can share my efforts as normal. Here's what I made of the kit she designed:
I thought the papers were really fun and were crying out for a beachy theme. So I had a look back through the photos we took when we went to Barbados in 2004. What a fantastic holiday that was! So the left hand page shows me and the kids paddling in the Caribbean and the right hand one shows my husband and son about to embark on a jetski adventure. They swapped positions mid-ocean which wasn't the best idea they ever had and then had a close encounter with a sea turtle. Happy memories!
Hope you approve of what I did Karen and see you next month!
